Indeed, and not to get stuck on the subject but what happens if you just pour it down the sink undiluted? 


 

It gets wet, is diluted into the water and is washed away, unlike glues and greases it won't hang around so long as the pipes are regularly used on a normal daily basis... 😁

C`mon,  now, brother....... ( as the union rep would say to his fellow labour supporters, ) you  must be careful, otherwise you will be putting fellow workers, &  brothers, out of a job....

keep putting stuff down the sink and the toilet and the drains.... 

It all makes work for the working man.... and keeps the level of unemploment down. Smiley

Re: Golden Syrup Disposal

You may well attract the rats with a sweet tooth now ( maybe sugar cane rats )... apparently rats love compost heaps for warmth and food,  and oftem make a home in one...

That is the funniest thing I have seen in ages, what a great play on words, still chuckling at it hours later....


Funny how one remembers some things - it's based on the punchline of a joke my father told me about 60 years ago!

Re: Golden Syrup Disposal

A bit late now, but I would have put it into a couple of clean bins, added some water and yeast,

left it a bit, then got totally blasted on the alcoholic concoction that would have resulted!

The black treacle I mentioned earlier was bought to add to some home brew I was making at the time and used in place of sugar... and very nice it was!

One of my old Dad's from many moons back was "... and that's why you can never take a knight out on a dog like this"

I cannot for the life of me remember all of the joke though.

Anyone?

Re: Golden Syrup Disposal

Birds eat berries and fruit so they must have a fairly efficient way of metabolising sugars.

Foxes didn't know they liked McDonalds or pizza until they ventured into town, so how do we know they don't like syrup?

The EU introduced a common emergency number (112) and a standard for the colour coding of fire extinguishers to make it safer for us to holiday in Spain so I'm surprised they haven't introduced a standard for colour coding refuse bins in order to make life just that little bit more convenient.

A wasted opportunity for more regulation.

It can be wheelie confusing that they refuse to colour code the refuse (and English spelling vs pronouciation can be confusing too )

 

I may get slated by certain people for 'ethnic stereotyping' ( but is it really my fault that I am white and can also type with both hands 🤣 )

 

Dustman knocks on the back door of an Asian restaurant.
The proprietor comes out
Dustman man says: ‘where’s ya bin’
Asian proprietor says: ‘I bin to Hong Kong’
Dustman man says: ‘no... where’s ya wheelie bin?’
Asian proprietor: ‘I wheely bin to hong kong’
Dustman: ‘ok... so how about: where’s ya dust bin’
Proprietor: ‘I dust bin inside doing some paperwork’
The Dustman, defeated, left without the trash.

Trash? How dare you use that word!

It's British rubbish, or nothing. 😂
